About Da Vinci College
Prepare students for their further participation in society
ROC Zuid – Holland – Zuid / Da Vinci College offers vocational training programs in Economics, Engineering and Technology, Information Technology, Health Care and Social Services. The age of our students ranges from 16 – about 20 years old. Besides also a wide variety of contract programs is offered, as well as basic education for adults. We are aware of the fact that being a ROC we play an important role in society and also have a great responsibility to prepare students in an adequate way for their further participation in society. This implies that we continuously work on enhancing relationships with supplying schools, companies and institutions. We have to know what the labour market needs.
Trying to respond to the needs of society & the labour market we think that international activities, like mobility for students and staff, will help to get prepared for work at the international labour market and to be an understanding and contributing citizen.
Da Vinci College worldwide
Over the past years lots of students and a growing number of teachers have been offered the chance of an international work placement. We have been cooperating with companies and institutions all over Europa for a long period. In the past we cooperated in pilot projects concerning learning materials for students. For the coming period we are in two different projects, one on ECVET with Finnish and Danish partners (not funded by Europe) and there is an application for a project in Care.Students of Da Vinci College also are working in projects outside of Europe. We have a number of good projects where students from different courses can have a workplacement and develop skills and competences. This year students go to America, Canada, Kenia and Cameroon.
Da Vinci College has set goals that we want to support the excellent students with interesting and challenging possibilities and give all students that are capable of going abroad the chance to do so.
